Gib ein Lied mir wieder
Sing a song for me once more

Modern Times CD


Sing a song for me once more
In the clear tones of your happy days –
As you know, peace has left me
And my hand is troubled.

When dark minds reflect,
images appear, rare, exalted,
But the illuminating memory is missing;
The colour, bright and happy.

When sickly minds are talking,
Then flattering tones sooth,
Then the voice is low and rich,
But for singing, it is not so beautiful.
